In the post-war peace of 1952, ex-Spitfire pilot Captain Samantha Moxley should be done fighting bad guys. Instead, she finds herself dragged into a clash with a mysterious US government agency known as The Nine, when they take an interest in the work of Jess, her archaeologist sister. Pursued by The Nine, former Nazis, and a host of otherworldly monsters, Sam must fight to protect her sister and uncover two hidden keys which promise to unlock the greatest archaeological find in history: the fabled Hall of Records. From the skies over New York, to the catacombs of Paris, and finally to the ruins of Ancient Egypt, her quest takes her into the ashes of the past in search of the dying embers of an empire....and a discovery that could transform the world, or bring it to a terrible end. File Under: Fantasy [ Top Women | Riff-RAF | Pyramid Scheme | Bash the Fash ]

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A serious creative talent and all-round nice guy."
"It's a giddy, white-knuckled ride to the very end."
"Dan Hanks delivers a rip-roaring pulp adventure full of supernatural artefacts and boobytraps, insurmountable odds, and irredeemable villains."
"So cinematic, you can taste the buttered popcorn."
"Move over Indiana Jones, Captain Moxley has arrived and she won't ask you twice!"
"Can a book at once beg for a prequel as much as a sequel?"
"Buckle up and enjoy the ride!"
"Hanks packs his pulpy, energetic debut with gritty violence, snazzy super-science, and high-flying adventure."
"Hanks forces us to suspend reality, embrace the chaotic ride and revel in the fun-factor."
"Rolls along at break-neck pace...like a novelisation of a hit movie you never saw" - Starburst Magazine
